In the sequel to REPLICA, Jenna Black drops us right where we left off. Nate and Nadia know that their small battle was nothing compared to the overall war they are waging with Nate’s father. They are also painfully aware of how precarious their current situation truly is. Nadia knows that she has to protect her sister, and Nate is desperate to protect not just Bishop but Nadia too. This sets the stage for the next thrilling installment of the series. Jenna once again leverages transitioning between Nadia and Nate’s point of view to create the suspense that makes it impossible to put the book down. The overall pace allows for character connection. There is also more focus on the relationships between the characters and character growth. Nadia and Nate are not the same people introduced in REPLICA. Throughout RESISTANCE both of them display how their experiences have changed them.
The best part of any second book is less world and character building and more story telling. That is exactly what Jenna does in this book. She does introduce new characters, but only in an effort to move the story long and help gain momentum throughout the book. There are predictable moments, but there are still surprises especially the end. It will leaving you begging for the third and final book.
